Year 1 - The Sound ore

This 'Sound ore' spelling quiz tests KS1 children on spellings with the ‘ore’ sound. The words used in this quiz have been taken from and extended to those in the National Curriculum.

Often the ‘or’ sound is written like that, with those two letters. However, sometimes it is spelt like this trigraph: ‘ore’. This quiz will test you on words with this sound. Can you spell the missing words?
